Hillsborough County Commissioner Kevin Beckner officially announced his campaign for Hillsborough County Clerk of Court with a campaign fundraiser at Ulele Restaurant in Tampa April 29.
Beckner, who is wrapping up his second term as commissioner, cannot seek re-election for his current position because of term limits.
He is challenging current Clerk of Court Pat Frank, who has served in the role since 2004.
The election is in 2016.
